What is Cloudflare?

Cloudflare is an amazing free service that helps in Speeding up and Securing your website. This is done by acting as a proxy cloud server between your website visitors and our hosting servers. That’s not all; this service will help your website from malicious visitors, save your bandwidth and average page load time.

Here’s how you can enable this service:

  1. Login to cPanel

  2. Scroll down to the Software/Servicessection
  3. Click on “Cloudflare”
  4. Enter your email address
  5. Tick on the checkbox to agree to Cloudflare’s terms of service

Click on “Signup Now”


  1. You’ll now get a success message for signing up with Cloudflare.
  2. Click on the “Click Here” hyperlink in the success message
  3. Click on the Cloud icon beside your domain name

That’s it. Give it a few hours for the changes to reflect and you’ll see the website speed improvement yourself. 🙂
